FIFA 17, EA Sports’ flagship football franchise, will be free to play beginning tomorrow through Sunday.

The free play weekend stretches from 1 pm ET on Nov. 24 to 2:59 a.m. ET Nov. 28. The entirety of the game is available during this window.

Similar to the free previews that are offered through the EA Access subscription, the trial will give everyone 10 hours of play. The fine print says that "a portion of The Journey game mode will be accessible during the limited time trial." The Journey is the story mode of FIFA 17 and the centerpiece of this year's offering.

The full game is a 42 GB download.

Game saves and other progress are transferrable if a user chooses to buy the full title. For more on FIFA 17, which we scored a 9.0, see our review.
